Treatment for Shin Splints
Effectively treating shin splints requires addressing the cause of the pain at its root. Professional chiropractic treatment can assist in restoring the natural biomechanics of the foot and knee, which reduces the tibialis anterior strain and promotes healing. Custom foot orthotics can also be of benefit, depending on the type and severity of the dysfunction. To accelerate the healing process and achieve complete recovery, Active Release muscle therapy is often implemented to reduce spasm and scar tissue within the muscle. The Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, ultramodern soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, fascia and nerves) therapeutic treatment designed specifically for cumulative trauma disorders such as Shin Splints.
